Subtitle Translation Services
Video subtitling services with translation includes the process of displaying the original or translated text of the spoken dialogue in programs, videos, movies, games, or short films. The subtitler creates a time-coded script and may also specify the positioning of the subtitle (usually 2 lines per scene with a character limitation) as well as add any additional localized Onscreen Text (OST). Captions/Subtitles can be either ‘open’ or ‘closed’. Open captions are always displayed and can’t be switched off, whereas for closed captions the viewer can toggle the subtitles to turn them on or off via a remote control on a DVD/Blue-ray or on YouTube or any other media viewer player which supports closed captioning. There are several professional subtitling software options which may do essentially the same job. It’s also important for the translators to follow a commonly accepted subtitle style guide. Best practices regarding displayed character restrictions, subtitle grammar, and commonly accepted caption formatting in the foreign language will also be used by our team.
We can provide translated caption files in programs such as SubRip, Adobe Premiere, After Effects, Visual Sub Sync or Sub Viewer. We can provide these captions in .srt and/or .sbv formats that can be used immediately on your desired platform. Open Captions (text ‘burned-in’ or hard-coded) are subtitles that remain visible at all time. This means the subtitles and the video are saved in video formats such as MOV, MPEG-4, WMV AVI, SWF, H.264 or DivX. Since open captions are rendered and embedded as part of the video format, they are not provided as a separate file for closed captions. Open captions are subject to loss of quality if the encoded video is compressed – for example – for the web.
The term captions and subtitles are used interchangeably and there is no difference to most people, however, in the U.S and Canada subtitles mean the text of dialogue while closed captioning referrers to ‘subtitles for the hard of hearing’ which includes other non-spoken elements besides the dialogue/narration.Same Language Subtitling (SLS): This is the use of Synchronized Captioning and is a highlighted karaoke style of subtitles.
